We have had several therapists on the podcast but Jenna is the FIRST who specializes in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Luckily there are solutions we can start doing today to reinforce a healthier habit and future for those who do struggle with these issues and Jenna lays out tangible ways we can begin to feel like ourselves again.MEET JENNALet’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF WEBSITEHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBYClick here to visit Rothy’sBloody Buddy Cup 10% off with code HERSELF

Let’s be honest for a minute: how are you at setting boundaries? Maybe you need to be more clear in your communication to others. Maybe you need to take action and not give in when there is a little pushback. Maybe it’s actually setting them for yourself and with yourself so you can quit feeling burned out, resentful and have energy to do the things that are most important to you.Fueled by the wise words of Nedra Glover Tawwab, we dig into boundary setting and where we can do a better job to BUILD our relationships with others and with ourselves.MEET NEDRABetterHelp Counselling 10% Discount Goodr 15% DiscountLet’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF WEBSITEHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBY

73. Mom Rage

Mom rage. It happens to most of us at one point or another and can feel debilitating and shameful. But you are not a bad mom. Let me repeat that… you are NOT a bad mom, you are simply a mom that is overworked and not getting your needs met.Like an iceberg, there is much more below the surface. In order to feel better as mothers, we need to get to the root of the issue instead of just focusing on the outward action.In this week’s episode, we break down where mom rage comes from and what we can do as parents to prevent it in the first place. You got this mama, you deserve to feel like yourself once again.More from DR. REAM hereLet’s connect!HERself PATREONHERSELF WEBSITEHERSELF INSTAGRAMMEET AMY MEET ABBYNEW Partner!

Dr. Ashurina Ream (known as @psychedmommy everywhere) is back on the podcast today. Dr. Ream is a psychologist who is certified in perinatal mental health. We covered SO many important topics in this interview. We spent the first half of the podcast talking about body image- diving into specifics about why many women struggle with this and what you can do to start improving yours. Before focusing on perinatal mental health- Dr. Ream specialized in helping people with eating disorders- so she brought a ton of valuable insight into the conversation. We also cover miscarriage- something that SO many women go through, but a topic that isn't talked about often. Lastly, we finish up with the overwhelm of motherhood and what you can do about it. Hope you enjoy this episode- it was an incredible and important conversation. MEET DR.

Elicia Shepard joins the podcast again and brings a real take on her life as a stay-at-home mama. Her vulnerability with topics like isolation in the pandemic, sex and intimacy struggles in the early baby years, and finding purpose outside of motherhood were inspiring.
